Glowing Plankton at Remire Montjoly Beach

Remire Montjoly Beach, just outside of Cayenne, is one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to. The beach is lined with palm trees and large, grey stones. The color of the sand, similar to red clay, is really what drew me to this beach. We returned after dark for a midnight swim and were surprised to find glowing plankton. If you haven't seen this yet, it's really cool.

Cayenne's Local Rum

Holy cow the rum was good. At one of the weekday markets--I don't know which day because we actually tried a friend's stash and never made it there ourselves--you can get rum flavored with anything from bananas to starfruit to oranges and spices. It was so delicious, our friend regularly sends them to her father in France.
